    Quality help with my recordings via fraps + Vegas

    Hey all, i make videos on and off, many different channels and such and now i've started to record whatever and whenever however the quality seems a bit iffy, i record at 60fps via fraps, and render for a 1080p setting on my 1920x1080 monitor, my computer specs are below
    cpu - I5 3570k
    mobo - Asus pz788z or something, not bothering to get the proper spelling as this wouldnt be the issue in my opinion
    psu - corsair tx 650w
    ram - corsair 16gb 1600
    hdd 1 - WD 1tb ?rpm - for OS/WoW
    hdd 2 - WD Black 1 TB 7200 RPM for my fraps recordings + editing/render save location.
    GPU - Asus GTX 660 TI 2GB

    Anyway i believe i can record and render perfectly but its a setting issue, i have a few videos one i recently uploaded looks a bit iffy in my eyes, the 1080/720 is `decent` but the lower settings are not watchable, , A test video; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xby_knmiOco

    MODS: if the video isn't allowed please remove it, just trying to show the quality of the video. The video only has 720 but my later ones are 1080 but the issue is still there, the 3 and 480p settings look horrible/not viewable at all and the 720p is better but a few blurry bits.

    my settings;

    Are there any better recommended settings? Cheers and thanks

    Record at 30fps, Youtube doesn't support anything above 30.
    Your Render/Properties settings are fine except change the settings to these

    Frame Rate: 30 (Project and Render)
    Maximum (BPS): 50,000,000
    Average (BPS): 25,000,000

    I like to add a small Sharpen effect to my videos because In my opinion, When I render the videos without it, The footage seems kind of "Soft". Dunno if that makes sense.

    Never ever do useless framerate conversions, those will have huge effect on render quality and time. And probably also cause the softness person above me experiences.

    Capture at 30fps, edit at 30fps and render at 30fps. Don't use the retarded 29.97fps which should've be banned from digital videos years ago. That should improve quality quite notably already without putting bitrate ridiculously high.

    Also on the video quality settings (2nd screen) change profile from "main" to "high" and turn off "enable progressive download".

    Trolling should be.

    Cheers for the replies but what i record at shouldnt effect the quality right? unless i record below 30 fps of course, i know youtube shows upto 30fps but i like to play my games flawlessly at 50-60fps :/ i know people say there is no difference between 30 and 60 but for me it feels sloppy, i will change the sony fps from 29.7 to 30 though. and i'll try the suggestion about the profile change.

    You can play at different rate from what you capture. It shouldn't make a difference unless you're below your target.

    And capturing at 30fps even if your game runs faster uses less HDD space.

    No point running higher speed capture unless you want to do something tricky in editing like slow motion segments or add motion blur.
